In 1969 year, the company "Hanna-Barbera", specializing in animation, began its triumphant way series "Scooby-Doo, where you!". The brainchild of the Duo of writers John ruby and Ken Spears almost instantly turned into a blockbuster spectacle, which was watching an American audience from the small large. In teenage circles even created a cult of fans of the animated series. With a new era of cinema and animation, it is no wonder that appeared feature-length cartoons, and shooting the movie was only a matter of time.

And here for fans of the Corporation "Mystery" came the long awaited year 2002, when the summer came the feature film adaptation of "Scooby-Doo". It is easy to predict that the hype around the film was crazy the ticket office of the cinema was bereft of tickets premiere. And here we must pay tribute to the producers of the film company "Warner Bros. Pictures" that bet not only the fans of the cartoons, but and ensemble cast, inviting starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Right in the year of the release of "Scooby-Doo" this pair officially signed and they have become the idols of youth: Prince Junior for the pictures "I know what you did last summer" and"she's all That", and his spouse thanks to the TV series "Buffy — the vampire Slayer" and the film "Cruel intentions". So that the producers deliberately rubbed my hands in anticipation for the big jackpot that in reality there was invested in the creation of 119 million dollars (including 35 were being spent on advertising) with more than paid off twice.

But if the hopes of the producers have achieved the expected financial addition financial well-being, then here the viewer is not get the expected result. And in this case, subjective blame in this appointed Director Raju Gosnell. This gentleman has proven himself in the as an editor, working on such films as "home Alone" and"Mrs. Doubtfire", "Beauty" and"Miracle on 34th street", but when he turned into the Directors, that it became clear that not it. Trikvel "One house", the Comedy "never been kissed", yeah and large "Building big momma" clearly demonstrated how weak Gosnell in as producer. And "Scooby-Doo" only confirmed this opinion.

First, disgusting quality was visual effects, and because "Scooby-Doo" they had to capture the imagination, at least a wonderful great Dane wasn't supposed to be distinguished from the real but computer graphics overlay was made of hands over bad. Watch this the humiliation was unbearable, except that the beginning of the film still somehow contributes to a pleasant view, but then the remaining 90% paintings — solid horror. Not able Gosnell and to add even small crumbs of humour, which exudes by Scooby-Doo and his buddy Shaggy: the film even ends of the lips don't touch for smile. But even worse was the script: it was decided that the investigation of mysterious events that led to the Corporation "Mystery", will be accompanied by these mystical elements. But how have mentioned — the special effects were bad, so the whole hand-drawn mysticism in the type of scary creatures is in the best case is puzzling.

Now as for the cast. And then again, the only benefit the producers of the film, invited popular idols of teenagers, yeah yourself Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar on two received three three quarters of a million dollars. But in fact, the casting was failed: Prince Junior idiotically looked with blonde hair, and impossible to understand was that whether it is constantly ill-fitting wig, then if hair him the Intern did. Heartfelt greetings make-up artists and make-up artists! Sarah Michelle Gellar only a few episodes looked good, and everything else — is a heartless character who is in the quality of the furniture. By the way, and the heroine of Linda Cardellini, absolutely not match the role of the clever Velma. Only Matthew Lillard does not have merged his character "Shaggy", it is Shaggy, but not Today, , the actor in the alone can get a movie. A famous poseur-comedian Rowan Atkinson and Isla Fisher almost did not affect the essence of the film, they here to show.

In General and General "Scooby-Doo" disappointed me personally for many items and it my opinion "merit" of Raja Gosnell.

If you regularly check CTC channel not live somewhere in a remote village, you heard about Scooby-Doo and team. This famous cartoon series loved by children in the world. Although I absolutely not know what they are draws this cartoon.

The characters are drawn badly. There is naive story, where the characters-the Goonies raziezjaya on the van similar to the van hippy rassleduyut secrets that are not the teeth servants of the law. And the worst thing is that always solve. In General, monsters are disguised as people. And in each series, all is repeated. You probably have realized is a movie of "Scooby Doo".

It is worth noting good special effects (still, the film's budget is 100 million). All the monsters look a bit cartoon (if you make them differently, children screamed fear). But the main advantage of the film is its main character. Scooby Doo made brilliantly.

Well, what did not take the usual dog on this role (remember the episode of "Jay and silent Bob"). This cute computer being hilarious as children and parents. I suppose after watching, many kids begged mom buy the same dog.

But I personally like what Scooby — just a glutton. Yes for the sake of hamburgers he goes to everything! So in there is a kind of humor. Some will laugh, but some otpravyatsya. And what the soundtrack! There are the Outcast and Sugar Ray and Busta Rames.

The feeling that do not look the feature film, and another series about Scooby-Doo. Even the beginning of the film is made in classic style. Yeah and the scenery and costumes of the main characters is reminiscent of the animated series. At first it looks cool, and then bored.

Of course, one would expect a weak plot. But to this! They what, was hired to write the script an eight-year child? And the main villain is just stupid. And plan the same. And cost more time to devote to scrappy Doo. And the scene is emitting the various sounds of the human dog of the organisms continues in the movie for a few minutes and completely inappropriate. Or do the creators wanted the young audience was repeating all these items your favorite characters?

Surprisingly, the actors coped well. In together they look great. Cartoon characters played brilliantly. Them the heroes were not real, lightly drawn, and so cute and funny.

And if not my personal hostility to Matthew Milardo. I without a hundred grams look no can. In every movie he pretend dumb. This film is not the exception. But not means he's a bad actor. If it was so incompetent, it is not invited to be removed.

You don't believe it, but about the existence of Freddy Prince I not even know existed. And it is quite a good actor. Sarah Michelle Gellar honestly earned his fee. The image of the beauty-silly she is more than fighter vampires.

And under a little vneshnostyu nerd, hiding the pretty actress Linda cardellini. But they no than "king of Comedy" by Rowan Atkinson. It turns out he can not only Mr. bean to portray. Oh, sorry, that he got such a moronic role.

In the end, the film is very childish. The pleasure you get only fans of family sitcoms and fans of the cartoon. Yeah and kids will definitely in love it. But if you are neither one of these categories, then watch the movie you not necessarily. But if you really want, it does child on an hour and a half. Although it is unlikely this movie will be remembered in five years. Such films are suitable for a couple times viewing. This begs the question: worth to do this film?

After all very watching cartoons about the Scooby-Doo, and not once I can't miss the adaptation of the film. Remember all your emotions when mom presents the tape a cherished movie... the Cassette I probably jammed into holes, he knew by heart.

Recently showed the film at the TV, I ran it watch — for many years not seen, decided to refresh in memory. Absolutely not want to sit and look for any gaps, shortcomings, disadvantages, and just relax and again to see the film childhood.

The film is somewhat similar to the cartoon — same good, no no global problems of betrayal, of evil, all just at home. For families. For children. And again the same characters were reunited after a long separation, to solve the next mystery. Handsome Fred and his girlfriend Daphne, jealousy on that it is always used as the bait. Clever Velma, the intelligence of the whole team, and, of course, two funny coward — Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, friends forever.

Actors perfectly coped with the task, and seemed to move the cartoon characters on the big screen. Freddie Prinze Jr. perfectly fit into the role of the cocky leader of the team, "Mystery", and blonde it looks good. Sarah Michelle Gellar found use for his skills of martial arts, acquired on the set of "Buffy", and glamorous fashionista Daphne — role in her teeth. Linda cardellini — the neither is Velma. She has worked well with role was funny and fun level all the characters of the film, which is not notice the cartoons where she was somewhat pedantic. And Matthew Lillard, in my opinion, all so have got used to your character Shaggy, what I now consider them to be one same man! Bravo! Pleased with the presence in the band and Rowan Atkinson. Here I first saw him in a negative role and, I admit, played it pretty impressive!

The most striking episodes I think the episodes with Shaggy and Scooby. Friends who are afraid of almost not its shadow, and for food. do you want, get into such "trouble" and because of their narrow-minded make is that not to laugh is a great feat. Not like only one episode — scene of peas, which they ate heroes and began to spoil the air. Here it is pure American humor, which we, the Slavs, not understand better this episode was.

And soundtracks? Sometimes they are so catchy that I want to dance, sing along, or even jump up and dance, forgetting all (that, actually, I did when she was little).

Conclusion: not worth to find fault with this film, to look for defects that are in each movie and just enjoy. Sometimes not should look beyond his nose.
